Summer 2011 Bucket List

I thought it would be fun to write down all of the fun things that we are looking forward to doing this summer and keep track of what we have actually done. Here goes...
  • Go to the zoo (both Como and Minnesota)
  • Roast marshmellows around a bonfire
  • Go to a water park
  • Go play on rides at Camp Snoopy (or whatever it's called these days)
  • Go check out the Maple Grove Farmers Market (done!)
  • Spend a lazy rainy day watching movies together
  • Go rollerskating
  • Go to the MN Arboretum
  • Make homemade ice cream
  • Go to an outdoor concert
  • Let Madison decide what we do for an entire day (within reason)
  • Go back to the huge playground at Highland Park and go on another paddleboat ride
  • Go the the drive in movies
  • Go walk around and take pictures at Minnehaha Falls
  • Have a BBQ with friends
  • Get Madison started in swimming lessons
  • Take Madison to the beach for the first time
  • Get ice cream from the ice cream man
  • Learn how to work my camera
  • Take a day trip somewhere fun (Stillwater, Duluth/Two Harbors, Taylors Falls)
  • Go back to the deer farm
  • Go back to Color Me Mine and paint more ceramics
  • Get another pedicure with Madison


  1. Stillwater has an awesome park called the Teddy Bear Park. Madison would love it. We usually go and have a picnic along the river.
    How did painting go at Color Me Mine? I have always wanted to do that. Did you take Madison?
